AbstractAbout AuthorsReferences
Methodological aspects of estimating the population density of Moscow are considered. The method of estimation is proposed in several sections: population density in residential blocks, districts, and the city of Moscow as a whole. The assessment of population density in the context of districts and residential blocks of Moscow made it possible to obtain a number of results that are of practical significance for urban development. At the same time, data on the density of larger formations are more accurate when using this approach. Based on the data obtained, cartographic materials can be generated (in two sections: residential blocks and districts), which will clearly show the territorial distribution of blocks and districts with different population densities, and the concentration of «problem» territories within the borders of «old» Moscow.
